"SANTA MARIA ANTIQUA: THE SISTINE CHAPEL OF THE ROMAN FORUM IN CONTEXT" (ROMA, 04-06.12.2013): CALL FOR PAPERS (DEADLINE: 12.04.2013) Da: Vera von Falkenhausen (verafalk@libero.it) "SANTA MARIA ANTIQUA: THE SISTINE CHAPEL OF THE ROMAN FORUM IN CONTEXT" Via Gramsci, 61, 00197 Rome, Italy December 4-6, 2013 Between 1900 and 1914 Giacomo Boni and the Soprintendenza Archeologica di Roma exposed and excavated the church complex of S Maria Antiqua, which was partially abandoned in the 9th century and later completely buried. In 1902, Gordon Rushforth, first Director of the British School at Rome, published one of the earliest definitive papers on the site. In 2000, these two organisations organised the Conference "Santa Maria Antiqua al Foro Romano cento anni dopo" to mark the centenary of the exposure of the site. In 2013, they are again sponsoring jointly, with others, a conference to consider further advances in research on this unique church and also to consider the additional information gained during the restorations now nearing completion. The conference will include a visit to the site (which is not yet routinely accessible). Following the recommendations of the 2000 conference, the 2013 conference will focus on placing the S Maria Antiqua complex in the context of its surroundings (the Forum, the Palatine and the wider Byzantine and Early Medieval world). It was Gordon Rushforth who first pointed out that the inscriptions on the four scrolls held by the church fathers in the apse came from the Acts of the Lateran Synod of 649 and the reasons for this link will be explored further. In addition there will be sessions dealing with the establishment of a church on the site, incubation, the cult of medical saints and changing social and political concerns within Rome and the Byzantine Empire during the life of the complex. The additional insights and interpretations of the decorations made possible by the ongoing restorations will also be central to the conference. Confirmed speakers: Peter Wiseman (Reading University) -- Henry Hurst (University of Cambridge) -- John Osborne (Carleton University, Canada) -- David Knipp (Freiburg University) -- Giuseppe Morganti (Soprintendenza Archeologica di Roma) -- Werner Matthias Schmid (Freelance Conservator, Rome) -- Richard Price (Heythrop College, University of London) -- Katy Cubitt (York University) -- Eileen Rubery (Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London) -- Manuela Gianandrea (Sapienza University of Rome) -- Robert Coates-Stephens (British School at Rome) REGISTRATION: There is no charge for attendance at the Conference, but space in the lecture theatre is limited and so early registration is recommended. Registration is also essential to secure a place on the planned visit to the complex of S Maria Antiqua. The Form for Registration (FORM ONE) should be returned to SMAConferences-BSR@Yahoo.co.uk by November 16 2013 whether or not you are offering a paper to ensure a place at the Conference and on the visit to S Maria Antiqua. PROPOSALS FOR PAPERS: Titles of proposed papers (20 min.) plus an abstract of no more than 250 words should be sent to SMAConferences-BSR@Yahoo.co.uk on the accompanying Form for submission of an Abstract (FORM TWO) by April 12, 2013. We hope to contact those whose papers have been accepted by June 16, 2013. ACCOMMODATION: Those requiring local hotel accommodation must make their own bookings.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE "SHAPING AUTHORITY" (LEUVEN, 05-06.12.2013): CALL FOR PAPERS (DEADLINE: 20.04.2013) Da: Aisbnews (aisbnews@gmail.com) "SHAPING AUTHORITY: How did a person become an authority in Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance?" INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE (LEUVEN, 05-06.12.2013) The cultural and religious history from Antiquity through the Renaissance may be read through the lens of the rise and demise of auctoritates. Throughout this long period of about two millennia, many historical persons have been considered as exceptionally authoritative. Obviously, this authority derived from their personal achievements. But one does not become an authority on one's own. In many cases, the way an authority's achievements were received and disseminated by their contemporaries and later generations, was the determining factor in the construction of their authority. We will focus on the latter aspect: what are the mechanisms and strategies by which participants in intellectual life at large have shaped the authority of historical persons? On what basis, why and how were some persons singled out above their peers as exceptional auctoritates and by which processes did this continue (or discontinue) over time? What imposed geographical or other limits on the development and expansion of a person's auctoritas? Which circumstances led to the disintegration of the authority of persons previously considered to be authoritative? We invite interdisciplinary and innovative scholarly case studies that document these processes. They may focus on one (group of) source(s) to analyse its contribution to shaping the authority of a historical person or they may take a longue duree perspective on the rise (and demise) of a person's auctoritas. Thematic clusters one can think of may include (1) Biography, historiography and hagiography as grounds for authority; (2) The role played by manuscript transmission and production; (3) The contribution of non-textual sources; (4) Biblical characters as authorities. Papers are invited from fields as diverse as philosophy, classical studies, Oriental and Byzantine studies, history, theology and religion, art history, manuscript studies and hagiography. The papers selected for presentation at the conference will preferably be case studies which contain the following elements in some combination: (1) Presentation and analysis of the sources and their context; (2) Analysis of the strategies for the "making of authority"; (3) Description of the long term success (or failure) of these enterprises.

III COLOQUIO ARS MEDIAEVALIS: "IMAGENES EN ACCION: ACTOS Y ACTUACIONES DE LAS IMAGENES EN LA EDAD MEDIA" (AGUILAR DE CAMPOO [PALENCIA], 04-06.10.2013): CALL FOR PAPERS (DEADLINE: 30.06.2013) Da: Equipo TEMPLA (equipo.templa@templamedieval.com) Con enorme placer os adjuntamos el programa del III coloquio Ars Mediaevalis (Aguilar de Campoo [Espana], 4-6 octubre 2013) dedicado a examinar las plurales capacidades de accion y actuacion que desempenaron las imagenes en la Edad Media. Esta convocatoria cientifica esta' abierta a recepcion de comunicaciones que aporten avances significativos sobre este argumento central de las "imagenes agentes", que constituye uno de los mas prometedores temas de debate historiografico en la actualidad. III COLOQUIO ARS MEDIAEVALIS: "IMAGENES EN ACCION: ACTOS Y ACTUACIONES DE LAS IMAGENES EN LA EDAD MEDIA" Aguilar de Campoo (Palencia), 4-6 de octubre de 2013 DIRECTORES: Gerardo Boto Varela (Universidad de Girona) -- Alejandro Garcia Aviles (Universidad de Murcia) -- (TEMPLA - Taller de Estudios Medievales) PRESENTACION Despues de haber celebrado en 2011 un coloquio que examino' los procesos mentales desarrollados en y con las imagenes en la Edad Media y otro en 2012 que investigo' diferentes problematicas en torno al empleo de las imagenes como acicates de la fe durante los mismo siglos, este III Coloquio Ars Mediaevalis se plantea como el cierre de un triptico que ha diseccionado valores ideologicos y capacidades comunicativas de los expositores visuales. En esta edicion se analizaran, en particular, las capacidades y las virtudes de las imagenes medievales para actuar, para ser literalmente agentes. En la reciente historiografia en torno a las imagenes, los terminos agencia, performatividad, agentividad, etc. apuntan, desde diferentes perspectivas metodologicas, al analisis de la interaccion de la imagen con su contexto, al concepto de la imagen como productora de significados, que contribuye a la configuracion de la realidad. Se recupera asi su caracter heuristico: la capacidad de la imagen de suscitar argumentos historiograficos y contribuir a resolverlos. Se trata de ir mas alla' de una concepcion iconografica de la imagen, anclada en la interpretacion de lo visual como correlato de lo expresado por discursos textuales. En el III Coloquio Ars mediaevalis se trataran aspectos relacionados con el poder de las imagenes y con su eficacia para comunicar y persuadir. Se examinara' tambien su lugar en el contexto liturgico, su interaccion con la trama social en la que se insertan, etc. Asi, se ubicara' el analisis de la experiencia de las imagenes medievales en el contexto de las actuales tendencias metodologicas de la Historia del Arte.

ISLALS FIRST BIENNIAL CONFERENCE: "LATE LITERATURE IN THE SIXTH CENTURY, EAST AND WEST" (BROWN UNIVERSITY, PROVIDENCE, 31.10-02.11.2013): CALL FOR PAPERS (DEADLINE: 01.08.2013) Da: Vera von Falkenhausen (verafalk@libero.it) CALL FOR PAPERS: INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR LATE ANTIQUE LITERARY STUDIES (ISLALS) FIRST BIENNIAL CONFERENCE: "LATE LITERATURE IN THE SIXTH CENTURY, EAST AND WEST" (October 31/November 1-2, 2013, Brown University, Providence, USA) Organized by David Bright, Scott McGill and Joseph Pucci [www.islals.org, under construction] Building on the synergy of the bicoastal conference held at Rice and at Brown in 2011, David Bright, Scott McGill, and Joe Pucci founded the International Society for Late Antique Literary Studies (ISLALS) in early 2012 as a venue for sharing our collective work on later literary studies, east and west. We intend the category of "literature" to be capacious, encompassing Christian and secular texts, as well as traditionally high and low forms. As part of the process of sharing our work, we envision a conference (at least) every other year and are happy now to announce the First Biennial Conference of ISLALS, to be held on the campus of Brown University on October 31/ November 1-2, 2013 (Thursday-Saturday, inclusive). The theme of the conference is "Late Literature in the Sixth Century, East and West". A rich body of literary texts survives from this seminal century that touches on nearly every genre. We invite explorations of these texts from multiple perspectives and especially seek papers that focus on the Greek east or that take cognizance of the interplay of east and west. Papers that consider the influence of sixth-century texts are also welcome. If you would like to participate, please send an abstract of your paper via email attachment to the organizing committee by August 1, 2013: smcgill@rice.edu, Joseph_Pucci@brown.edu, dbright@emory.edu. Papers will be twenty minutes in length, with ten minutes of questioning/discussion to follow. We hope for a program of around 20 papers. ISLALS requires no dues and there is no registration fee for the conference. ISLALS will provide refreshments during the conference (morning continental breakfast and morning and afternoon breaks). ISLALS will also host a closing banquet for all conference participants. All other meals as well as lodging and travel will be the responsibility of participants. At the conclusion of the conference, we will hold a round-table discussion on the shape and governance of ISLALS and the dates, locations, and topics of future meetings. Please send queries about the conference to Joseph_Pucci@brown.edu. Queries about ISLALS may be sent to any member of the organizing committee. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- B.

HILL MUSEUM AND MANUSCRIPT LIBRARY (HMML, COLLEGEVILLE, MINNESOTA): GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR CATALOGING WORK IN ITS EASTERN CHRISTIAN COLLECTIONS Da: Aisbnews (aisbnews@gmail.com) The Hill Museum and Manuscript Library (HMML) announces grants available for cataloging work in its eastern Christian collections in Arabic/Garshuni, Armenian, Old Church Slavonic, and Syriac. These grants are funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Many of these collections are greatly understudied and catalogers thus have prime opportunities for new and further research, as well as the satisfaction of making a contribution to our knowledge of the literature and of manuscript traditions. The grants support full-time cataloging work for periods of one to six months, and are renewable. The work may be done anywhere; residence at HMML is not expected. Catalogers will be expected to prepare text-level records for, ideally, 75 manuscripts per month (with these numbers adjusted for genres with multiple texts per manuscript, such as hagiography and homilies). A sample record may be viewed here (http://www.hmml.org/research2010/catalog/detail.asp?MSID=125656). A brief report summarizing completed work (numbers, notable finds, etc.) will be sent twice a month to HMML's lead cataloger of eastern Christian manuscripts, Adam McCollum. Completed records will be submitted on a monthly basis. The grants offer a stipend of USD 2500/month, with the added benefit of copies of two digitized manuscripts from HMML's collections each month at no cost, which may be used for personal research. Those who wish to apply for a cataloging grant may send their CV and a cover letter to Adam McCollum (amccollum@csbsju.edu), to whom also any informal enquiries may be sent.

DATABASE ACCESSIBLE ONLINE: "ARTEFACTS AND RAW MATERIALS IN BYZANTINE ARCHIVAL DOCUMENTS" / "OBJETS ET MATERIAUX DANS LES DOCUMENTS D'ARCHIVES BYZANTINS" Da: Aisbnews (aisbnews@gmail.com) The database "Artefacts and Raw Materials in Byzantine Archival Documents / Objets et materiaux dans les documents d'archives byzantins" is now accessible online at http://elearning.unifr.ch/apb/, http://www.unifr.ch/go/apb. On this page -- Byzantine Resources, click Typika. In this database are collected all the terms related to artefacts and raw materials encountered in published Byzantine archival documents. Each occurrence of a particular term is accorded an individual record. This record as a rule contains a brief discussion explaining the particularities of the specific use of the term. In addition, each term is also the subject of a synthesis record, where a general commentary on the term can be found, often accompanied by relevant bibliographical references. This is still very much a work-in-progress and the database needs to be completed and improved. We would, therefore, invite and welcome suggestions and corrections, especially from colleagues with expertise in the various areas covered by the database. Instructions on how to use the database (howto.pdf) as well as a "Help" menu are accessible at the database's home page. A contact address (typika@unifr.ch) may be used for reporting problems regarding the operation of the database and for submitting comments and questions.
